It’s another big week in the House of Lords on . This isn’t the tick box to Brexit Bill the govt have claimed. Serious constitutional change afoot, & the Lords are unpicking the govt’s complacency.

Lord Kerr - The population of Canada is 3 times the population of Switzerland but we sell twice as much to the Swiss because it's closer... the rule is as distance doubles trade halves... we must limit the damage of leaving our closest market.

RESULT! Removing the Charter of Fundamental Rights arbitrarily deprived UK citizens of rights. Well done Lord Pannick, and those who supported the amendment.

I voted to remain (as did all my family). We LOST in a fair democratic vote. What the unelected HoL has done with regard to the customs union is an affront to democracy.

Hoping the govt will be listening now after multiple defeats inflicted on by the Lords, a result of not consulting, not listening in the first place. Rigorous analysis & open debate are hallmarks of a mature democracy.

The size of the defeat ought to make the govt stand up and take notice, but it will be fear of defeat by Tory MPs that will see the amendment pass in the Commons. The should not be a vehicle to reduce substantive rights.
